Emmerdale fans are convinced that the soap has aired a trick twist tonight (Sunday 20th June) as part of the Kim Tate poisoning plot. 

Viewers will know that a mystery person close to Kim has been putting diazepam in her brandy, leaving her to originally worry that she was developing dementia. It has since been revealed that someone has been putting the drug into her drinks, and now the net is closing in on the culprit. 

Tonight's Emmerdale saw Noah find the drug in Will's toolbox, leading to him believing that he could be the one guilty of wishing Kim harm. Despite promising that he wouldn't tell anyone about the diazepam, Noah soon revealed what he had found to Jamie (Alexander Lincoln) who he has been secretly snooping for.

But while all the signs are pointing to Will being the one poisoning Kim, fans think it is all a red herring and that poor Will is being set up. Could Jamie be the one secretly drugging his own mum, and can now conveniently use Will as a cover by framing him?

Fans took to social media to share their thoughts on the red herring twist, convinced that the soap is trying to send us off on the wrong trail on purpose...

Could her poisoner have finally taken the plunge and finished her off for good? Or will there be more to the story?

Will has spent tonight's episode sorting out the electrical wiring in Home Farm, something that Jamie seemed very uninterested in. 

Could some dodgy electrics be what ends up finishing off Kim Tate, or are there more twists and turns to come?
